DFA: Sanders “clear front runner” for nomination after Wall Street wing’s NH “circular firing squad”
Bernie Sanders just won the New Hampshire Primary -- deliver a big win for progressives across the country
Statement from Democracy for America (DFA) Chair Charles Chamberlain on Sanders win in New Hampshire:
“Bernie Sanders emerges the clear front runner after the New Hampshire win tonight scoring a critical victory for progressives that makes it more likely Democrats have a nominee this fall who will rally disaffected voters to our fight, inspire a new generation to action, and build a grassroots movement equipped to beat Donald Trump up and down the ballot.
“At the same time, progressive should have no illusions about what tonight’s victory means.
“While the slow-motion implosion of the Biden campaign and the circular firing squad on the party’s right has thrown the Wall Street wing into disarray, we fully expect them to try to marginalize this win, pit progressives against each other, and spend millions to stop the growing grassroots movement for progressive change.
“As we move into the more diverse contests ahead, momentum is on our side and it will be critical that Democrats ready to fight for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, and a more inclusive America remain united.” -- Charles Chamberlain, Chair, Democracy for America
